Gild Hall, A Thompson Hotel
Located in the heart of New York's bustling Financial District, Gild Hall, A Thompson Hotel, offers a unique retreat from the city's skyscrapers and suited business atmosphere. This 126-room hotel exudes an aesthetic reminiscent of a sophisticated men's club, with its cowhide rugs, leather couches, and white-brick walls adorned with wood.
Despite its tucked-away location on Gold Street, which may make hailing a cab slightly challenging, the tranquility that envelopes the hotel at sunset makes it worth the effort. The haven doesn't stop at the surroundings; the guest room amenities at Gild Hall ensure a relaxing stay with luxuries such as oversized Frette bathrobes, top-quality C.O. Bigelow toiletries, and mini-bars stocked with Dean & DeLuca delights.
Designed by Jim Walrod, Gild Hall mirrors the warmth and comfort of an Aspen country house. Natural materials such as leather and bone are tastefully incorporated throughout the design. It's central yet slightly offbeat location means guests enjoy serenity without compromising accessibility to New York City’s prime attractions like Battery Park, South Street Seaport, and the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.
The hotel is home to the Felice Restaurant & Wine Bar, serving authentic Tuscan dishes, from pastas to grilled branzino. The second-floor wine bar, La Soffitta, with its leather banquettes and case-lined walls housing wine bottles, is a favored happy hour spot for Wall Street professionals.
Gild Hall's boutique status doesn't deter it from being family-friendly. The staff are always ready to assist guests of all ages, whether it's finding activities to entertain the kids or helping locate a babysitter. Its proximity to many of the city’s subway lines also makes traversing Manhattan a breeze.
While La Soffitta can get crowded during after-work events, the Felice Ristorante & Wine Bar offers a quieter alternative for a calm libation experience. Although the hotel lacks a spa or pool, it makes up for it with its peaceful ambiance, a welcome contrast to the larger corporate hotels in the city.
Guest rooms at Gild Hall showcase elegance and comfort. Despite the bathrooms being somewhat compact, they exude style with brown and white marble floors, glass shelves, and sleek Grohe silver fixtures. The thoughtful room design incorporates dark wood moldings, sliding closet doors, and artistic desk chairs with built-in leather cushions. Some rooms even feature plush window seats with vibrant cushions, while the Thompson and Penthouse suites offer separate sitting areas and an additional half bath.
Gild Hall's design combines rustic luxury with modernity. The lobby boasts wooden floors, a patch of leather beneath cozy couches, and a glass coffee table surrounded by white-washed brick and wood walls, accentuated by stylish lighting fixtures and a brown cowhide rug. The guest rooms continue this aesthetic with leather-tufted headboards, brown wood platform beds, and matching wooden window dressings. The hotel's restaurant and bar, Felice and La Soffitta, perfectly mirror this quiet stylishness with their wooden tables, comfortable leather banquettes, and welcoming atmosphere.
